I invite you to join me on this exceptional 7-day mountaineering course where we’ll prepare and climb the Matterhorn (‎4,478 m), one of the most dramatic mountains in the Alps.

The Matterhorn is the most photographed mountain in the world. As one of Switzerland’s iconic summits, it is a sought out challenge for ambitious mountaineers from all over the world.

On the border between Switzerland and Italy, this extraordinary mountain is famous for its myths and legends. Furthermore, it is relevant for its place in mountaineering history and for its astonishing shape and beautifully exposed ascent.

I have organized this 7-day program in order to get to the top of this amazing summit in the best possible conditions. Each participants climbing technique will improve gradually as we climb the Riffelhorn (2,928 m), the Pollux (4,092 m), the Briethorn (4,164 m), and finally the Matterhorn (‎4,478 m). Additionally, this expedition requires familiarity with rock climbing and with snow and ice skills. Also, it’s essential to be in great physical shape.

Climbing the Matterhorn is without question one of the world’s great classic mountaineering challenges. So if you are ready to check this adventure off your bucket-list, send me a request and we’ll start preparing for this unforgettable trip in Switzerland!
